About the Show Less...

JM Barrie’s magical tale comes to the leafy surrounds of Kensington Gardens in a very unusual production. Read More >

JM Barrie’s Peter Pan is one of English literature’s most famous and most loved tales.

The story of the boy who never grew up, who takes the Darling children on an amazing trip to Neverland and introduces them to pirates, Indians, a crocodile and the Lost Boys, has been enchanting children and adults alike for over a century.

This new adaptation of Peter Pan by Tanya Ronder, who also adapted Vernon God Little for the Young Vic and Blood Wedding for the Almeida theatre, is staged in a specially constructed tent in Kensington Gardens, the venue that Barrie first met the Llewelyn Davies family who inspired his famous creation.

The 1,100 seat venue hosts a production of Peter Pan in the round which features 360-degree projected scenery using CGI animation designed by seven-times Laurence Olivier Award winner William Dudley.
